Do you have a story to tell?

If you are involved in aircraft manufacture and you have developed new methods, processes or techniques; if you have designed a product which cuts costs or makes manufacturing more efficient; if you have reorganised or launched new services, then our readers are keen to hear about it.

Airframer is produced for the multidisciplinary team involved in the aircraft manufacturing process. It aims to support aircraft construction by publishing authoritative articles written by experts in their field and providing a vehicle for discussion of innovations and industry best practice.

You do not need to be an established writer, but you must be able to present your ideas in a clear and informative way. The majority of articles published in Airframer will be written by professionals who have never been published before, and will be subject to peer review. Please see our Notes for Contributors section for full coverage and submission details.

If you would like to submit an article for publication in Airframer, please email a brief synopsis of your idea along with your full international contact details to the commissioning editor

Notes for contributors

Airframer does not impose a rigid house style, but writing should be clear and direct. We encourage authors to use plain English and avoid jargon, as this is not only easier to read, it is also far more likely to hold the reader's interest. Aim for an article length of 1,500-2000 words with no more than 30 references. Once you have written your article it needs to be presented following the rules below:

TITLE PAGE

This must contain the title of your article, the names and initials and professional and academic qualifications of each author; the department and institution, or company, to which the work should be attributed (if applicable); the name, address, telephone and email of the author responsible for correspondence and extra copies.

TEXT

The article should be typed using double spacing and wide margins at the top, bottom and sides to allow for typesetting instructions to be added. Each page should be numbered.

SCOPE

A short summary to your article (3 or 4 sentences) should be included outlining what is covered in the article.

KEYPOINTS

Include three or four brief sentences summing up the most important points of the article.

KEYWORDS

Supply three to eight words suitable for indexing.

LAYOUT

The use of headings within the text makes the article easier to read and understand. Subdivide the text into main sections with sub-headings. Headings should be kept short, succinct and meaningful and similar in sense and style.

TABLES, ILLUSTRATIONS AND PHOTOGRAPHS

These are welcomed where they enhance the clarity of the text and should be clearly labelled and/or numbered, with relevant captions. The text should indicate where they are to be placed. The author is responsible for obtaining written permission for their use where necessary. Photographs should be in colour and if supplied digitally, be high resolution (300dpi at 6-9 cm wide) for printing. Original photographs will be returned after publication.

REFERENCES

These should be made according to the Vancouver system. References should be identified by numbers in parenthesis in the text and listed in numerical order at the end of the article. Please give the names and initials of all authors (if more than six, list the first three only followed by et al). Authors are responsible for the accuracy of all relevant citations. To cite web publications available for viewing or downloading, give the author's name (if known), the full title, site/journal name, the full http address (URL) and the date of visit or date the page was last updated.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The author must acknowledge substantive contributions to the article. Authors are responsible for obtaining written permission from everyone acknowledged.

EDITING

The journal reserves the right to edit all manuscripts according to style and space requirements and if necessary to clarify content. Authors will be fully involved in the editorial process, although the final decision lies with the editors/ publisher. Article proofs will be sent to authors for approval prior to publication.

COPYRIGHT

All manuscripts must be submitted exclusively to Airframer and must be original i.e. not published previously in another journal. Copyright of all published material will belong to Airframer and Stansted News Ltd.

SUBMISSION OF ARTICLES

Keep one copy of the article for your own reference. Papers should be sent either as an email attachment to or on a disk or CD together with a printed copy to: Airframer, 134 South Street, Bishop's Stortford, Herts CM23 3BQ, United Kingdom. Or call us on: +44 1279 714507.
